the website, healthcare.gov. before i talk about the law and its benefits, let me tell you about a visit i made to the emergency room on a friday night recently with one of my boys after he broke his left arm. the care was excellent. so much of our emergency trauma and specialized care is. what was remarkable to me is not the care that my son got as grateful as i am, but rather the crying of two babies i heard in their emergency room being treated for asthma. dramatic asthma attacks. i cannot know for sure whether those babies were insured or not. if they did have coverage and the access to primary care that comes with such coverage, chances are it would have been far less likely to be getting emergency care for something like asthma on a friday night in the emergency room. my heart broke for those parents. they seek care for their suffering child in the emergency room. we are talking about asthma, something increasingly and sadly common, but also fundamentally treatable. "the new york times" reminded us it's the single most expensive place to get treatment. there seems to be a strange out
